Awesome...wonderful...romantic...suspenseful...emotional...sigh-worthy...hmmm, where's my thesarus? There are not enough words to adequately convey my feelings for this book or series in general. The only problem I have is how do you choose? How do you choose your favorites in the Virgin River series? I thought no one could top the original alpha with a heart of gold (Jack Sheridan from Virgin River), but man oh man, those Riordan guys are coming awfully close! First Luke, then Sean, and now Aid ...more

There are two places you're guaranteed to hear about vaginal dryness. In a medical textbook, and in a Robyn Carr `romance'.

I've had enough of Virgin River.

The region has a disproportionate percentage of residents who make a living from working between women's legs.

We got another lesson in the details of menopause - but this time it happened when Jack had a conversation about it. And there's no better way to kill the romance of a romantic hero than write him into a conversation about vaginal d
Reseña completa:

es una novela totalmente coral y sale un montón de gente, con el mismo protagonismo que los nuevos. Ese es el problema y, supongo que la ventaja, los que siguen la serie desde el principio estarán encantados de ver qué tal les va pero a mí no me interesaban en absoluto
Es una novela muy americana, por el entorno y ciertos detalles (su protagonista no es machista, creo que la que lo es, es la autora, por ciertas frases)
el romance es un insta
Dear Ms. Carr,

I love this series, especially because all 10 books are on audio and narrated by Therese Plummer (aka Savannah Richards) who is, bar none, the best in the business. She breathes life into the characters that inhabit Virgin River; and,if the two of you remain a team, the series will rock for as long as you want it to.

As enjoyable as the series is, however, there is one major flaw that I'm hoping you can correct at some point soon. While it is true that you've created THE hero extra

I love the Virgin River series! Aiden and Erin's romance was a treat, so very hot and sweet at the same time! I loved how Aiden took his time with Erin! Oh boy! I didn't want their story to end, I felt like I needed just a little more, at the end, but as with all the other couples I'm sure I'll get updates in the coming books, so I won't complain.

Annalee was a complete nutcase! Thankfully, she wasn't as divisive as I thought she would be. Still, she caused a lot of very serious trouble! I hope s

Well, this one was didactic. Almost lost a star for the lectures on special needs adults, surrogate parenting and life after hysterectomy. One of Carr's strengths is her dialogue, but people just don't go into these long-winded explanations. And I'm not sure that, as a reader, I needed to know all those details ... at least not more than once.

In any case, I liked the lead couple. I loved, loved, loved, that my favorite Virgin River couple -- Ian and Marcie -- were back in the picture. Although M
I absolutely LOVED this book. As usual Carr did an impressive job pairing the hero and heroine together. While I had reservations about Erin and Aiden as a couple before I read the book, due to my perception on Erin’s personality. It soon became obvious I should not have worried. Although Erin is indeed uptight and a bit controlling at first, we are able to see other facets to her personality and it soon becomes apparent it’s just a façade. In the end she turned out to be one of those rare heroi ...more

5 stars – Contemporary Romance

This is another sweet, dramatic, moving, emotional, and romantic addition to Carr’s superb Virgin River saga, which remains one of my top favorite series.

Aiden Riordan is such a husband worthy hero, and although his relationship with Erin Foley developed rather quickly, the connection between them felt genuine and their moments together were innocently tender, touching, and passionate. The way Aiden was so determined to please Erin...Ahhh and Yowza!

Opening Line: "In the two weeks Aiden Riordan had been in Virgin River, he's hiked over a hundred miles and grown himself a pretty hefty dark red beard."

Erin Foley’s character was first introduced to the Virgin River series way back in book #4 A Virgin River Christmas now she’s back and a whole lot nicer for book #10 (if you‘re counting)

Por lo que he leído por ahí, las historias de Robyn Carr pecan bastante por lo mismo...
Me ha parecido una lectura muy dispersa, la autora intenta explicar las historias de demasiados personajes, algunos de los cuales sigo sin saber muy bien a qué venían a cuento, algunas parecían metidas con calzador... Hubiera sido mejor q

Yay! I loved this book. Aiden is one of my most favorite characters. He is right up there with Jack and Me. And yes we get Jack and Mel more in this book woohoo.

Ok so we meet Aiden a few books back he is Luke’s OBGYN brother. We also meet Erin a few books back she is Marcie older sister. Erin is having a hard time with both her brother and sister moving on with their lives. She pretty much has been raising them since she was just a young girl herself after her mother and f

Just a continuation of the Virgin River Epic.

I may stop reading these soon - I don't find I'm getting anything new out of them. That isn't to say that I didn't like Aiden and Erin, because I did, but I am starting to get tired of Mel. And Mel is always around. Jack and Mel are a pivotal point of this series, although they may not be heavily featured they are always important to some sub-plot and frankly I am done with reading their story.

Not my favorite book of the series. It didn't quite engage me all the way, but it was still a good book. Carr would have to do something really bizarre for me to hate a Virgin River book.

Series Note:
Personally, I would highly recommend reading this series in order.

Aiden Riordan recently left the Navy and is taking some time off in Virgin River with his family before he looks for a new OB/GYN position. Erin Foley, a tax & real estate lawyer, is on a much overdue vacation in Virgin Riv

Moonlight Road es el decimo libro de la serie Virgin River creada por la autora Robyn Carr y narra la historia de Aiden ( el tercer hermano Riordan ) y Erin, un personaje que conocemos brevemente en el cuarto libro.

Love this book. The ending brought tears to my eyes.

These books are the perfect "getting into the holiday spirit" type of read. They have a quaint, almost Hallmark-movie type feel to them that leaves me feeling uplifted. That said, I don't think I'd have the patience to read them, as they're not as couple centered as I prefer in my romances. However, I've loved listening to them as I go about my day.

While I wasn't as enthralled in this particular story as I have been in some of the other books in this series, I still enjoyed it. Most of it takes place in Virgin River, CA, and involves a heroine that was first introduced in #4 in the series, "A Virgin River Christmas" with Ian Buchanan and Marcie Sullivan.

As with any series, it's better to have read the series in order and since "Moonlight Road" updated a few other past characters--especially this one!

Reviewed for THC Reviews
Moonlight Road was another fabulous installment in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. This one focuses primarily on the rather large and still growing Riordan clan. We also get to see a fair bit of Ian and Marcie (A Virgin River Christmas) for the first time since their book. Many other current and former Virgin River residents pop in for a visit although some are merely in the background. This time the story was a little less about the town, and a little more about both A
I dunno. Is it me, or has the writing in this series gone downhill? While the Virgin River books still have that 'comfort read' feeling about them, I'm finding more and more issues as I progress through the series.

For starters, these books are now featuring some of the most unnatural dialogue I've ever has the displeasure of reading. People just don't speak like this. It's like the author is using the character's dialogue for info dumps - and what's worse, either the reader already knows the inf

I love this series it is so heartwarming and uplifting. This is like the warm, fuzzy blankets of book series. The stories envelope you and you wish Virgin River was a real place. This is the 11th book in the series and, as with many other series, there are reader favorites. I still don't think any can compare with Jack and Mel's original story, I was really looking forward to Adien's story. I was a little disappointed in Sean's story.

Yarg. Mel irritates me. You can be reading a perfectly good Virgin River novel and then enters Mel, and she takes over. Then you start to wonder who the book really is about and what happened to the main characters. I don't know why the author feels the need to resurrect Mel throughout this series and give her new obstacles to overcome. Maybe because she was the main character in the first novel. Not sure. Or maybe there are a lot of Mel fans out there. Not me. Anyway, because of Mel's repeated ...more

Awful. It's a romance novel, so a certain level of awful is expected, however, this goes above and beyond. Part of it is your typical romance fodder. Erin is a 30-something, smoking hot, red-haired, highly successful lawyer who never had time for love. Aiden is a 30-something, smoking hot, raven haired, highly successful doctor (OB/GYN) whose past relationship soured him on love. They meet, there's drama, hot sex, more drama, they live happily ever after. At the same time, this book is part of a ...more

This was my first Robyn Carr book. Probably I shouldn't start with #10 in a series, but it's a testament to Carr's abilities that I wasn't completely lost. That said, there were a LOT of characters to keep up with, and I probably would have enjoyed it more reading from book 1.

Pros: Really good subplots throughout--especially, fertility, adoption, and handicapped adults.
Cons: For me the love scenes were a bit over the top! There was also minor language, though that wasn't too much of an issue.
Adorei!!!! Como sempre esta serie e esta autora deixam me rendida.
Para quem segue a serie é sem duvida uma leitura recomendadissima! 😊😊

Please note that I gave this book 3.5 stars and rounded it up to 4 stars on Goodreads.

This is another Virgin River book that I got a kick out of and was happy to re-read. I had forgotten most of the details about it, but this deals with a character we haven’t seen since “A Virgin River Christmas, Virgin River Book #4” and another one not since “Temptation Ridge”. The male and female hero/heroines in this book are Aiden Riordan and Erin Foley. They have what I consider a really messed up meet-cut

Dr. Aiden Riordan's at loose ends since he's left the navy and his entire plan is to hike around Virgin River, Grace Valley and points in between. Aiden's daily hikes take him near tightly wound workaholic Erin Foley's renovated cabin. Aiden's sudden appearance with a machete, he's using to help him traverse the thick woods, causes Erin to have an accident.

Erin mistakenly takes Aiden for a homeless vagrant but allows him to take her to the hospital and her sister and brother

2.5 because I'm a nice person.

Listen, the love story between Aiden and Erin was good, it was cute! I liked a lot of it, it was well done, as was the character development between Aiden and Erin. I was even willing to looking forward the ignorant remarks made about lawyers being "the opposite of nurturing" and the comments about a Estates/tax lawyer not being able to be cute. I rolled my eyes, was annoyed enough to share with my friends (one who is interested in becoming an estates/tax lawyer and

Wow! Wow! Carr ceases to amaze me. Moonlight Road was a wonderful story that had romance, family values, marital issues, a small thriller part and the birth of lives. Do I need to say more? The story between Aiden and Erin was very refreshing and like all of Carr's characters kept me intrigued.

Carr has the only series (that I know of) that keeps going back to the first romance that started Virgin River. Mel and Jack have a disagreement in regards to adding to their growing family. Mel faces the

First off, let me start by saying I love this series. I love the characters, the storylines, and the descriptions of the town and surrounding areas. I like revisiting old friends from previous books in each new installment. That being said, I didn't like this book as much as the previous ones in the series. I still enjoyed it, just not as much. I figured out a few books ago that I need to think of these as more of a chick-lit or women's fiction style rather than a traditional romance, b
